Qt 5.6.0 has a few noticable regressions since a DBus change, this causes a
problem where kded may deadblock breaking functionality in Plasma and
potentially any frameworks based application.

Before shipping Qt 5.6.0 *please* apply the following patch:
https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/151459/
<https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/151459/>without it, Plasma may
completely fail to load.

The Qt DBus maintainer also recommends that distros backport this:

I would also like to see:
https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/151496/
https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/151340/

included, but they are less important.

David
